What Deadlines Say About Us

During the summer we were overcharged by several hundred dollars for some work we had done. In pursuing reimbursement, the office manager assured her that she would have the check within a week. We are now on our tenth “within a week.” So, what do we think of the office …

Touching Others

Sometimes, it seems, we go through life wondering what it’s all about, feeling like we’re unknown little cogs that nobody notices. We go through life, day after day, our routines and habits seeming to define us. We see others in passing as they tangentially touch our lives. The barista at …

Write the Vision

Christian writers frequently say they feel called to write. Some Christians are called to be pastors or teachers or evangelists. Some are called to be doctors, lawyers, school teachers, auto mechanics, stay-at-home moms, business leaders. God has plan for each of us, “plans for good and not for disaster, to …

Why Writers Conference

The weekend of September 17 and 18, I attended the North Texas Christian Writers Conference in Keller, Texas. This conference is unique because of its lack of agents and editors. There is no pressure to pitch, compete, impress or any number of other ways to embarrass oneself. It is a …

Continue the Journey

Life is a journey. Our Christian walk is a journey. But it’s not a straight line path from earth to heaven. God’s plan for our lives can have many stops and turns. The popular term among some Christians is “seasons in our lives.” I am certain He has a path …

The Dream to Write

I read on a writers email loop that one of the members was giving up writing because she felt unable to create or produce anything that anyone else would want to read or publish. It’s sad to see someone give up on their dream. If our Father has called us …
